It’s an IPA, India Pale Ale, amber colored and with a strong hoppy aroma.

A beer that’s been made for thirsty people, to be drank without too much thinking, to be enjoyed while strolling down the streets on warm evenings.

In brewing Hobo we used a big amount of rye (29 %) and 10 % wheat, plus five different kinds of malted barley. We decided to use hops from America and New Zealand: we used Nelson Sauvin during FWH and in whirlpooling, while in the next two additions we used Amarillo and Cascade.

bottle at mowbeer’s 30th beerday party, thanks to chris for bringing this. clearly this beer had seen better days - aroma strongly resembled cat urine, rancid garbage juice flavours. even with 4 of us sharing one bottle, most of this was tipped out

Grifo. Vaso Shaker. Saboreada en el Freiburg (Barcelona). Color ámbar y apariencia velada. Corona por una capa amarillenta, cremosa y persistente que deja anillos y copos en las paredes. Aromas de caramelo, maltas de tostado moderado y trazos de manzana madura. Agudo amargor resinoso desde el primer sorbo apoyado en una firme y sólida estructura de maltas tostadas. Cuerpo medio/pleno y carbonatación suave. Textura densa y oleosa con punto picante y reseco en el paladar. Los cítricos y las resinas que afloran en el intermedio permanecen en el contundente y prolongado final amargo. Refrescante y de fácil asimilación. On-tap. Shaker glass @ Freiburg (Barcelona). Amber color, chill haze appearance. Headed by yellowish, creamy & lasting crown. Lacing rings & spots are left. Candy, caramel & mild toasted malt aromas, hints of ripe apple. Sharp resinous bitterness at first sip based on sticky toasted malt backbone. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Unctuous & Oily texture. Spicy & driedpalate. Citrics & resins in the middle linger into a heavy & long bitter finish. Refreshing & easy drinkable.

Draught @ Le Resistencia, Barcelona. Pours a dark amber colour with a white head. Aroma of strong fresh grass, gooseberry bush and birch leaves. Flavour of fresh floral hops, herbs, juicy exotic fruitiness, weed, mild caramel and pale malts. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and very soft carbonation. Finishes mildly sweet, very bitter, floral and strong on juicy exotic fruitiness. Excellent.

sebletitje (8269) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2013
33cl bottle, the Crown Royal of Hobo beers? Hell yes. BB 12/03/2014. Cuivrée-ambrée, col épais crémeux café au lait. Arôme garde une présence optimale de malt-caramel oscillant sur la drêche. De ce fait, le bouquet houblonné reste un peu en retrait. Garde néanmoins ce côté Nelson Sauvin appréciable suivi d’un rétro-nasal agrumes très américain. Palais au caractère malté-caramel agréable. Houblonné entre fleuri et fruité sur notes d’agrumes. Le Nelson ajoute ce côté groseille typique. Le malt - et grains finissent par dominer la fin de bouche. Cette dernière adopte dès lors un profil léger farineux accompagné d’une pointe d’épice - seigle?

Elle est super agréable cette bière ! Une amertume parfaitement metrisée, un mélange de saveurs fraîches (agrumes) et plus chaudes (caramel) qui se mélangent joyeusement. On aimerait juste une petit étincelle pour mettre le feu aux poudres ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

18-JUL-2013, bottle @appartment in Barcelona, from La Cerveteca. Hazy amber/orange with lasting, creamy, lacing head. Fruity hoppy aroma. Taste the same. Very malty as well with bread and caramel. Could have Nelson Sauvin...? Fruity and coco. Medium carbonation and body but turns a little watery. Finish a little hoppy bitter. Nice fruity IPA.
